Matthew - saz
Inge - mandolin, acoustic guitar, accordion
A few things have been spliced in places, and a bit of compression, reverb and EQ added - otherwise all straight from MiniDisc.
Notice the curious auric field manifesting between Matthew and Inge's brains!
1-2 based on vague themes we have been individually developing (Inge playing mandolin throughout, unless stated otherwise).
3-4 and 6 completely freeform saz and mandolin jams.
5 is a jam emerging out of "25 Years of Inge", a tune Matthew wrote for her 25th birthday in Cornwall, some years back.
7-9 are loosely based on Irish tunes, recorded on St. Patrick's Day as part of a recorded message for our friend Alan (Flemish/Irish/Scouse/Rasta) now living in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
10 was our first attempt at involving Inge's accordion playing in our music - a bit wobbly, perhaps, but a really lovely ending.
11-12 recorded on the afternoon of the Spring Equinox, in some woods near Inge's home - she's playing a theme she's been working on for acoustic guitar
13-15 recorded on the evening of the Equinox. Colin can be heard playing faint percussion (darbuka), also there is some crackle and pop from the fire we were sitting around. Track 15 is a jam based around "25 Years of Inge".
